    Cool The Best Open Source Programs

    This is a repeat post but the other thread was really old so I wanted to open a new one.

    I am always on the look-out for awesome open source programs.

    Gimp is a great tool. You can do the same stuff as photo Shop and this is free, open-source. Just search for it and download it. It takes a while to learn but it's great. Ah, and I think it had a version that looks like Photo Shop if yo are used to that program.

    That's my choice, what programs do you suggest? Please be sure these are open-source, not affiliate links that you are trying to earn a buck on. Thanks!!

    I really like paint.net. I don't need all the features of photoshop.

    I'll have to say that these are my favorite apps and utilities in open source. The ones I use the most I guess...

    - Chrome (chromium)
    - Firefox
    - Unison (syncs between multiple computers -- like DYI Dropbox)
    - Synergy (one keyboard and mouse for multiple computers)
    - Thunderbird
    - WordPress
    - MySQL
    - Apache
    - Filezilla
    - VLC (play *any* video file)
    - Audacity, sound player & editor
    - Nagios (monitor your sites and servers)
    - FreeNAS - Turn a computer into a storage appliance.

    How can Word Press be left out of the list? I like Magento eCommerce, Prestashop and Tomatocart as well.

    Thumbs up

    I have a bunch but five favourites.

    - nmap
    - openvas
    - metasploit framework
    - nagios
    - ossec

    Not too forget Ubuntu of course but that's more like a collection of open source.
